A PIKE FISHING TRIP ON THE EASTERN GULF OF FINLAND
Pike fishing trip with an experienced fishing guide
Pike is the most popular sport fish in Finland, and with good reason, as it is a very common catch. Some big pikes are swimming out there too, and we have even caught some weighing more than 10kg. So, with the help of our very experienced fishing guides, you also stand a very good chance of catching your dream fish.
Pike fishing is very versatile, with a wide variety of lures (soft lures, jerk baits, spinnerbaits, jigs, and spoons) and techniques available today. With your guide, you'll get to test the best new lures and how to use them effectively, as well as discover the best spots as per the season. Pike can be fished all year round
-All necessary fishing equipment
-Accompaniment of a certified fishing guide
-Boat and fuel costs
-Coffee and drinking water -Barbecue sausages. To be enjoyed either on the beach or the boat as you wish.
-Statutory liability insurance
Your fishing permit needs to be purchased separately, and while the guide can issue you permits for an additional cost, the easiest way to get a permit is to buy one yourself at https://www.eraluvat.fi/kalastus/kalastonhoitomaksu (in Finnish), which will cost you 6€ a day per adult. Under 18s and over 65s can fish without a permit.
- If you would like something other than a sausage grilled by the guide during the break, we can arrange an island lunch for an additional cost. Ask about different options available when making your booking. Also, keep in mind that any food orders must be made at least 48 hours before the excursion by agreement with the tour operator (Predator Fishing Finland Oy). You are also welcome to bring your own food if you prefer.
- Our boats are designed for cast fishing and are equipped with state-of-the-art sonar technology for real-time underwater observation. The boat also comes with a bow thruster, casting platforms, and quality fishing gear for your pleasure. Additionally, any fish you catch is guaranteed to stay fresh in the boat's circulating water mist system. At the end of the day, your guide can gut and fillet your catch but can also give you good tips on how to do it yourself.
- If arriving for the tour dressed in your own clothes, please remember to bring warm, water-repellent clothing just to be on the safe side – Finnish weather can be unpredictable. Even if it's warm on the mainland, the sea breezes can be cold at times, and sudden showers can come by surprise.
- We reserve the right to cancel a fishing trip if the weather conditions are not suitable. If the weather turns dangerous due to high winds, thunderstorms, or freezing of the departure harbour, the excursion will have to be cancelled. We will, however, do our utmost to find an alternative day for you, but in the unfortunate event of us not being able to fulfil your booking, a full refund will be given. The fishing guide will assess the weather conditions and decide if the event can be safely held prior to each trip.
Essentials to pack for an activity
Clothing suitable for the weather. Alternatively, we can arrange warm overalls and boots for you in cold weather, but this must always be agreed upon separately with the tour operator (Predator Fishing Finland Oy) and at least 48 hours before departure. Be ready to specify what size you require.
